This year’s competition has reached its conclusion, Ben Cox, Jofra Archer and all but I’m no richer!
That’s right, I didn’t win. Admittedly not bothering to keep on top of transfers and having only one player in the final having had just as many in the semi-final didn’t help my cause!
Overall, I finished in 3178th position with a total of 5728 points.
Kent’s Joe Denly led the way for my outfit with 1159 points and therefore should’ve been my captain. That honour fell to Samit Patel who totalled only 471 points before being doubled. Denly’s reward for being the star in my team… an as predicted call-up to England’s Test team for the tour of Sri Lanka.
There were contributions from throughout my side with Patel’s Nottinghamshire teammate Tom Moores (710) my next highest scorer. Liam Dawson, Ryan Higgins and Ross Whiteley all contributed in excess of 500 points.
I’ve already decided on a change of tack for next year that will involve a more active approach to transfers. Roll on 2019…
